Edited by Rui Kohiyama


This is a collection of primary-source materials on the International Exhibition in London or Great London Exposition, held from 1 May to 1 November 1862, beside the gardens of the Royal Horticultural Society, South Kensington on a site that now houses museums including the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. Featuring over 28,000 exhibitors from 36 countries, it represented a wide range of industry, technology, and the arts and attracted about 6.1 million visitors.

The collection includes facsimile reprints of official catalogues in four volumes together with a special edition of Cassell's Family Paper published at the time of the Exhibition.

Its many illustrations vividly recreate scenes from the Exhibition.
